Houston Texans DE J.J. Watt could have the franchise tag used on him if the two sides can not reach an agreement on a new contract, according to owner Bob McNair. "You've got guys in the Hall of Fame that have been franchised in back-to-back years," McNair said. "The franchise tag is worth something to the team and you can't be afraid to use it."

Houston Texans WR Andre Johnson "is not going to be traded," in the opinion to John McClain. Houston wants to avoid giving Johnson the $1 million workout bonus that he passed up by not participating in offseason activities or guarantee his 2015 salary. They don't want to create a precedent that can be manipulated by DE J.J. Watt's agent in the future. McClain said that "Any 33-year-old ... anybody doesn't walk away from" the $10 million that Houston owes Johnson.
Fantasy Tip: The financial clarity in this situation makes it likelier that Johnson will report, but you can't guarantee anything until there's a concrete resolution. Johnson remains at least a serviceable WR2 no matter where he plays this year.

Houston Texans defensive coordinator Romeo Crennel plans to be flexible with his defense and move guys around to create different looks for the opponent this year in his 3-4 defense. "You have to be flexible and be able to adapt to what your players can do, and you have to be able to adapt to what your opponent's doing," Crennel said. "It changes all the time." DE J.J. Watt could line up in a three-point stance or he might stand up. LB Jadeveon Clowney can stand in the base defense and drop in passing situations. LB Brooks Reed can play inside and outside and LB Whitney Mercilus can switch sides.

The Houston Texans selected South Carolina DE Jadeveon Clowney with the first overall pick in the 2014 NFL Draft.
Fantasy Tip: They're not concerned with all the negatives. They'll squeeze him into this defense to try pairing him with J.J. Watt. Houston's fantasy defense is still backup material but, if all goes right, could be playable during the year. In IDPs, Clowney is a middle- to late-rounds pick with a lot of downside.

If the Houston Texans draft DE Jadeveon Clowney with the top overall draft pick, he would work closely with DE J.J. Watt. Owner Bob McNair said Watt could be the perfect mentor for Clowney. "He's not a J.J. Watt," McNair said. "J.J. didn't have that natural (ability). He worked. He developed his. I said to J.J., 'I don't know what will happen but if we get Clowney, we want you to instill in him the same kind of work habits that you have.' He said, 'Well, if he's in the same room with me, he'll have them.'" McNair said the team could also trade the top pick.
